DocBlaster CostEmate uses a questionnaire to help your customers understand what they need, matching their answers to your offerings. Based on this, an estimate of costs, savings or specific information is automatically created and sent to them, while their details are sent to you.
Multi-factor customer choices and inputs are automatically matched with your product and service components to create comprehensive cost/savings estimates or reports automatically. Their information is accurately captured for your organisation, with a choice of follow-up options.
Assuming your business does an average of one quote per day, if it saves you 15 hours per month, DocBlaster CostEmate could have paid for itself and you could be saving money in less than 8 weeks. Of course results will vary.
There is an AUD $1 charge per completed DocBlaster CostEmate.
It's best if we make your first CostEmate for you. You will need to supply us with a list of questions you presently ask your customers, your company logo, and a price structure for your offerings. We are working on making it easy to modify this whenever you like, or ask us to do it for you.
Usually less than a week from start to finish, but please ask if you need it sooner.
In consultation with you, we refine your questions, assign cost structures or parts of cost structures to the answers and format a report template on which your CostEmates will be based, including totals, global discounts, taxes, charges and other calculations. We are working on letting you change DocBlaster CostEmate yourself by updating your questions, price structure or output report template we have made for you. Or you can ask us to do it.
Yes. You are automatically emailed an access link to your CostEmates. All information collected can be also conveniently hooked into a cardwall for you to view at any time. This helps you keep track of jobs and customers. You can also access JSON raw data or CSV format to use with your favourite programs.
Results will of course vary, but we have seen deal closure rates soar from 1 in 5, to 1 in 2, after the prospect was qualified using DoBlaster CostEmate. We have also seen the time it takes to make quotes cut by more than half with many of the details already in hand.
We provide a URL which you can use with your website, Facebook, Google, print on your business cards, or SMS to your inquiries. Your receptionist can also use your DocBlaster CostEmate to provide estimates over the phone, while at the same time capturing the prospect's details and many of their job details.
